One of my favorite parts of gardening is the planning process. Every year around Early to Mid-April I begin figuring out what exactly I am going to plant this year in the Garden and break out my spreadsheet to start filling it in for the season. This is my time to reflect back on last years season and try to fix or better my garden this year. It also just, in general, gets me excited for summer and garden fresh vegetables.

I am now convinced that 2018 is going to be the year that flies by because I have no idea where the first four months went, nevermind April (I have yet to determine if this is a good thing or bad).
April itself was an amazing month, minus the cold that latched in for a few weeks (but hey I got to catch up on a lot of Netflix so it was not a total loss). I was able to finally escape winter and go on Vacation with Rye. When we returned the weather began to warm up and dare I say it, spring may actually be here! And it was my birthday, which normally I avoid, but turning 25 was a big one for me. I also spent a lot of the month brainstorming and making some changes here on the blog, that are partially visible now, with more rolling out in the coming months. I am happy to say there are some great things coming that I am SO excited for!

It is scary to me that today I turn 25 and have now been on this earth for a quarter of a century. Birthday’s for me have always been weird. I have never been able to fully capture into words what today means to me personally (especially when trying to share it with others) and that is in part due to my discomfort in the day being all about me. Birthdays are not really a celebration for me, but more of a reflection and an introspective look into the course of the year or in general just my time here on earth. It is a day for me to plan on how to be better going forward for myself but more importantly the people around me.

Today & Every Day
Happy Earth Day! Every year I let this day be a great reminder to myself of why I need to get out of my winter shell, go outside and once again get in touch with the Earth. And not to sound too much like my Mom, it is an amazing opportunity to take time to celebrate all the things we are blessed with just by being on this planet. It is a day to reconnect with this beautiful rock, commit to simple changes with big impacts and remind ourselves why it is so important to protect it, not just on this day but every day.

Even If It Is Just For A Day
I will be the first to admit that I can be extremely addicted to my phone. When I wake up in the morning, well most mornings at least, I roll over and check my phone for the time. Lucky for me I am not so popular that I have a ton of missed messages, most of my friends know by now that texting is the wrong way to get ahold of me. But the first thing I do, 9 times out of 10 before I am even out of bed, is to start scrolling through Instagram, checking all the stories and new photos. Then I go through my notifications, my emails and check all the updates on my games (yes, I still play a fair amount of mobile games… will I ever grow up).

Wow, I can’t believe we are already a quarter way through the year. Is it just me, or does everyone else feel like the winter months just blend together and form one big cold time-block? This year especially felt this way. A lot of changes did happen over the last month or so though. I left my job for one and started to enact a new life plan and a path to follow (very excited and more on this later). 2018 so far has been a big year of bringing around change and it is making me excited for what else is to come!
